Passion & the education of children and young adults

I wrote a short essay on the role of passion in the education of children and young adults. The piece is based upon my work at The Infinity School here in London. You can read the link and explore the school’s website here:

If you live in London (or nearby). . . .

And are looking for something wonderful and creative to do with your young child then I highly suggest checking out the London Children’s Museum.

I routinely see children from 1-10 there and I am always struck by how stimulated the kids are by the activities and exhibits. But most of all, I love watching my twenty-one month old daughter investigate fruits and vegetables, dig dinosaur bones and play with puzzles . . . and all with a glint in her eye.

Learning is fun. Why do so many of us learn otherwise?
